    Description

    Ninth Plate Tintype of George W. Gaither, Co. "C" 10th Virginia Infantry. Gaither enlisted at Harrisonburg, Virginia on April 10, 1862. The 10th Virginia served in every major action of the Army of Northern Virginia with the exception of Antietam. Through the course of the war, the regiment saw 1350 men under arms with only 45 remaining to surrender at Appomattox. Gaither is shown in civilian dress with classic Confederate gray kepi, with black band at the base, perched jauntily on his head. Very fine condition, tight emulsion, delicate tinting on his cheeks. Mounted in a period leather covered wall frame with brass suspension loop at the top. Nice image, great regiment.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
